I have been interested in trying out a few from the H&M beauty line, but you know it is not so easy when your nearest H&M store is about an hour away and don’t yet carry all the beauty line (only some makeup and tools). I had to use my other method of obtaining products that have not yet made it to Australian shores.
As you know, I love a good skincare product and one of many types I enjoy to pamper my skin is using face masks. I have tried a few various kinds like sheet, gel, cream and powder. If you know of any more types, please leave your recommendations down in the comments.
According to the US website, they have included a few more to their face mask family. So at present, there are 10 various face masks that includes: coconut water, kiwi and watermelon, Manuka honey, raspberry leaf, liquorice and sugar, witch hazel, pomegranate and mango, cucumber and aloe, charcoal and volcanic soil, and tea tree. All are priced affordable at just USD$3.99 each and comes in these pods at 0.34 fl. oz / 10ml. You can get a few or more uses out of each pod depending on how much of it you use. I simply just apply to my face, avoiding my eye area and neck area for my preference.
It has been sometime since I bought these and in the past 2 weeks have been trying them out. I have been using the Kiwi and Watermelon, a self-warming face mask that has a consistency of a runny gel-like texture. It can get messy if you are not careful, but I do like that you instantly get a mild warming sensation that lasts 10 seconds before it fades. Obviously, this type of face mask is not new to me, but it may not be everybody’s cup of tea.
It claims to ‘open pores and draw out dirt while kiwi, watermelon and pear leave your skin sweetly scented’. At first, I did feel that it helped to open up my pores, clear it out and kept my face feeling soft afterward, but had a very subtle sweet scent of fruits. I found later, after multiple uses, the self-warming would only last about 5 seconds. My skin did not seem to look as clean feeling as it did the first time I used this product. It can just be how I stored the remaining in a clear plastic sandwich zip-locked bag. I feel this to be a bit of a gimmick product, which I felt did not really do much for my combination skin type. Perhaps I could have a successful outcome when I do try the coconut water face mask next time.
Have you guys used these H&M face masks? Which is your favourite?
